In lack of playing time at Paris Saint-Germain and disturbed by his relationship problems, Mauro Icardi no longer feels comfortable in the capital. The Argentinian would like to leave during the next winter transfer window.
Icardi has played little at PSG since the start of the season
It’s an understatement to say that Mauro Icardi has been in the news in recent weeks. Problem, the 28-year-old center forward was more talked about for his troubles with his wife Wanda Nara in the columns of the news than for his performance on the field. It must be said, in addition, that the Argentine striker plays quite little this season at Paris Saint-Germain.
A luxury substitute in the capital, the former Inter Milan player must now count on the absence of Lionel Messi, Neymar, Kylian Mbapp and Angel Di Maria to hope to start in the eleven of Mauricio Pochettino. And again, even the absence of Messi in the last two games, against RB Leipzig (2-2) and Bordeaux (3-2), did not allow him to be the holder. It is to say the difficult task which presents itself to him.
Icardi wants elsewhere
Faced with this declining playing time and a hectic personal life, Icardi wants a change of air, say our colleagues from Foot Mercato. He aspires to find a place of holder in a calmer environment to dispel his doubts and calmly take care of his family. The native of Rosario, under contract until 2024, is therefore listening to the proposals that could be presented to him during the next winter transfer window.
It remains to be seen whether any offers will arrive on the office of the Parisian leaders. Purchased 50 million euros (excluding bonus) by PSG in 2020, Icardi is now estimated at 35 M € by Transfermarkt. A large sum that could cool his pretenders in January, especially since he will also have to pay his salary which is around 12 million euros per season. In the past, Juventus Turin often dreamed of the Argentine. But the financial situation of the Italian club today makes such an operation complicated. Case to follow …
